James Young signs training camp deal

James Young has a new home for his NBA career, at least through training camp later this month.

The former Kentucky Wildcat and 17th selection in the 2014 NBA draft signed a camp deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, per Inside Hoops.

Young spent his first three seasons in Boston, where he averaged only 2.3 points per game in 89 games over those three years. He also spent a lot of time playing for the Maine Red Claws, the Celtics’ G-League affiliate.

The new deal with the Bucks provides Young the opportunity to start over in the league, although he will have to earn his way onto the team’s final roster. Milwaukee’s current depth chart lists three shooting guards in the rotation: Tony Snell, Rashad Vaughn and rookie Sterling Brown, a second-round selection. Khris Middleton and Jabari Parker have the small forward position locked up.

Training camp begins on September 26 for most teams.

    Who? No seriously, I wish KSR wouldn’t waste space on these largely forgettable one and done guys, especially the ones that haven’t come back to do something positive for the program. Guys like Young and Archie Goodwin. Other than a dunk in the championship game, I can’t remember one thing that stood out about Young while at UK.

Particularly guys who are struggling to even stay on an NBA roster and especially ones that haven’t come back to do something positive for the program. Guys like Young and Archie Goodwin.

      He was still a cat and a starter on a team that took us on a ride of a lifetime. I wish you wouldn’t waste space with this largely laughable and ignorant comment.

      natedaddy, maybe you could demonstrate how to do something positive for the program and stop ripping on former players who busted their asses for the entertainment of fans who don’t appreciate it.

      I do contribute to the program by paying my hard earned money for season basketball tickets. Which is probably more than you contribute.

      Yeah if you just didn’t do that guess what they would still play the games and guess what, the outcome would stay the same. You’re a joke

    How about the 3 he hit at the end of the Wichita St game?
